The San Bernardino County Transportation Authority will spend $2.8 million to help add express lanes on Interstate 10.
The project will widen an 11-mile stretch between the Interstate 10/Interstate 15 interchange and Pepper Street, according to a statement released today.
One express lane will be added in each direction, along with auxiliary lanes and extra enforcement areas for the California Highway Patrol.
Iteris Inc., which installs software, hardware, and other technology used to manage infrastructure, was awarded a five-year contract to undertake the project.
The Santa Ana-based company will provide toll infrastructure, closed-circuit television systems, changeable message signs, fiber optic cable systems, and traffic monitoring systems, among other services.
“We are thrilled to have been chosen to support this important initiative for San Bernardino County,” said Steven Bradley, regional vice president for Iteris, in the statement. “We realize this project is critical to improving movement on this highway, and we look forward to working with the transportation authority, Caltrans, Advanced Civil Technologies and other stakeholders to make it successful.”
A construction start date was not released.
